Summary (From the publisher):

It started with murder, and it ended with murder - the usual crime blotter of a city - but with one difference. All of it was done by kids.

So the D.A. and the Mayor and the High School principal and the Welfare Department psychiatrist got together. Because they figured the kids were being organized by a ruthless, but very smart adult.

They hired Mac, a private detective, and they told him to get close to the kids, listen to them talk, find out who's giving them orders. And why. And how.

It didn't take Mac long to get onto the Why and How. It's easy to sell glamour to teen-agers. The cellar clubroom was the work of a brilliant imagination, with its display of lethal weapons and curtained dais and concealed loudspeaker. Here they came for their orders.

Who? Just Mr. Smith. That was is name. Nobody had ever seen Mr. Smith. He was the metallic voice that gave orders - to kill!
